Game 13 Thread: April 17 vs. Giants, 5p

Kenta Maeda (1-0, 0.00) vs. Jeff Samrdjjirrddzzaa (1-0, 3.38)

Thankfully the Maeda start is the ascent part of the Dodgers' pitching roller coaster. Kershaw, then Kazmir, then Maeda gives one whiplash. Kazmir is the part where the guy in front of you pukes. Maeda, on the other hand, hasn't given up an earned run yet and is a welcome relief thus far as the rotation continues to....well, rotate. I had the pleasure of watching him pitch for the first time in the home opener; he was poised and confident, looked like he'd done his homework on opposing batters, and was ready to play defense and to swing the bat. Let's hope he does all those things again today.

Dammit, Maeda struggling to find the strike zone. He gets out of it, but an ominous start.

Dusty Baker said...

Props to ESPN for that great Vin tribute/retrospective. Loved him reading the grocery list.

Cliff Beefpile said...

Fuck these bullshit weak giants hits.

Pretty sweet defensive play by Maeda (which the ESPN team is admiring as well)

Hatcher gets a K for the first out

48,911 at the Stadium, which still looks pretty packed. Well done, Dodger fans!

Steve Sax said...

Span grounds weakly to short. Two out.

Steve Sax said...

fly out to right. 3-1 LA, mid 8.

karen said...

Hatch looked good though I wonder how long it's gonna take for me to feel like I don't have to hold my breath the whole time he's out there.

Steve Sax said...

Geez, Turner. They go to Kontos with two out in the eighth just to face you, and you swing on the first pitch to fly out to short? Hmm.

3-1 through 8.

Steve Sax said...

Hi karen! I agree

Steve Sax said...

Leadoff single for Oyster.

Steve Sax said...

Pence with a slow chopper to short forces Oyster Pubes. One out.

Steve Sax said...

weak mis-hit from Belt pops to second base, for the second out.

Steve Sax said...

is it just me, or is Kenley's windup even slower than ever?
